A must for most Thanksgiving tables, the juice and zest from one orange gives this cranberry sauce a tasty spin on a traditional favorite.
Cranberry Orange Sauce
1 12-oz package of fresh cranberries, washed
1 large orange
Grated zest from your orange
1 cup of sugar
Squeeze the juice from the orange into a measuring cup. If you have less than one cup of juice, add enough water to equal 1 cup.
In a saucepan, add all of the ingredients and bring everything to a boil. Reduce the heat to a high simmer and cook, stirring frequently, until all of your cranberries have popped and your sauce has started to thicken, about ten minutes. Remove from heat and pour into your serving dish. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
